Turnout is the key to winning elections. A party can have the best candidates and the most brilliant ideas in the world, and still fail abysmally if its supporters are not motivated to show up at the polls. Voter apathy cost the Republican Party dearly in 2006 and 2008, and the desire to repudiate President Obama’s hard-left style of governance catalyzed the great success stories of 2010.
The GOP needs to recognize that it now has a formidable bench of activists who are committed to GOTV efforts. Three of them were kind enough to devote a chunk of their precious time to an interview on Italian Tomatoes on Blog Talk Radio. Tune in and listen to Kirsten Lombard, Melody Warbington and the indefatigable Cold Warrior set forth strategies that motivate people to exercise the most valuable right we have as citizens. And go vote!
Note: Melody Warbington has written a post that contains more information about GOTV; follow the link to Unified Patriots.
